Bary Lee Blakkolb grew up in San Bernardino, California. He was married to Marlene since June 1961. They moved to Texas in 1983, moving to the Dallas area with their children from Southern California via the Chicago area. 

When they were living in the Dallas area, Bary and Marlene became avid golfers for many years. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He had many fond memories and always enjoyed the many happy times spent together with his family over the years. He and Marlene were blessed with numerous vacation trips to Hawaii (their favorite getaway location) and to Disney World. They also did extensive traveling through the Southern, Central and Western parts of the country; many times playing numerous golf courses along the way. 

Bary's entire 45 year business career was in the food industry. It included both retail store operations (10 years) and direct food sales (35 years). He held various sales management positions with the Best Foods Co. in Southern California, Illinois, and Texas. Long after Barry retired, he and Marlene moved into a new home in Castle Rock, Colorado.
